The place was nice and clean. We paid for a double room and the room had one double and one single bed, I don't think they even count them. The food from the kitchen is pretty good and the wifi is terrible any time there is more than 5 people using it (always). It is about a 50 peso cab ride to the town, or a 4 peso bus, which only the ones every 30 mind, I found. Overall it was decent.


Big Hostel with many visitors but absolute low kitchen equipment. Nothing available to make a salat,. no plates to eat soup! the own hostel kitchen does not give any plates to the self cookers. low equiped rooms (dorm) - not any hook to hang on wet clothes. (Visit of Iquazu falls is a wet event in any case, so you need some devices to accelerate drying). badrooms are dirty and not cleaned up every day.


Overall our stay was very good and what can be expected from a decent hostel. Some brief comments: - we had wifi in our private room - staff were very helpful and friendly - the room was clean but did have a smell of smoke - the food we ordered from the kitchen wasn't that great but breakfast was good - the hostel is a few kilometers out of town but you can get a bus or a taxi if need be, you need to travel either way to the falls which is the main point of the visit


Between the city and the falls, but still lots to do around the area. Might have to do a bit of research to find local activities though. Highly recommend the animal sanctuary up the road. The house made of bottles was kind of cool too. Only complaint was we didn't always get what we ordered from the on-site restaurant and depending on the kitchen staff, sometimes they weren't really into the customer service aspect. But it was all pretty minor and I'd recommend it all the same.


Nice hostel. Booked a 6-bed dorm but it had 8 beds. WiFi is only available in communal area. Breakfast is alright but cereal is served in disposable bowls. Needs hooks in bathroom. Pool looked very inviting but didn't take advantage of it.


Strongly disappointed by this hostel. The structure is nice but it's located quite far from the city center and bus service stops at 22h. If you are traveling alone and you want to meet people, this is a mayor drawback: the hostel is NOT a party one. I was there during the May long weekend and there were around 10 other person, and lots of them were couples. The day time staff is absolutely the worst. They are totaly incompetent. Go to another hostel!


The staff was very unfriendly, they acted like they didn't know any information about the falls or the local transportation. If you want to play pool or ping pong you have to pay extra for each game. Kitchen is poorly supplied and dirty. Overpriced food and drinks.


Even though the Hostel is a bit far from the village we actually liked that because it is closer to the Iguazu National Park and it was a nice surrounding. I would definitely recommend this Hostel to everyone because the atmosphere was great. + for the huge pool outside, the Bungalow we stayed in (4 people) which gave us the feeling of being in a Hotel, the breakfast was also amazing for this price - the staff wasn't that nice which I had already read in reviews before, expensive Taxi service

Unfortunately my stay at the Hostel Inn Iguazu Falls was not pleasant. The location is good however the room was not so clean and the toilet was not usable, as it smelled really bad! The fact they did not take credit cards was also an issue to be considered next time.

Even when you experiance heavy monsoon rains, it´s great to chill out there: Free billard, table tennis and kicker. In general one of the best, if not even the best, hostel I visited on my tour!


Great staff and great hostel. Amazing pool and very clean. The hostel is emplaced about 5 km from Pto Iguazu on the road that leads to the airport and the falls. Perfect for groups of around 4 people that can share a taxi...you would be getting the best of both worlds. Very cheap for what it has to offer. The food however is simple and the choices very limited. No pizza on the menu!!! Haha. I completely recommend it.

Not very well located and you are not provided with maps and info the way you are at most other places. The staff is somewhat helpful IF you ask them everything you want to know. If you get stuck under the pool tables you will have lots of noise to deal with into the night. I would not stay here a second time.


Really nice hostel with great public spaces, rooms, and wi-fi. The staff was very good as well. The hostel is located outside the town, but they have a taxi service to take you there if you want to go, so it is not that big of an issue. I have already recommended this place to friends!


Todo bien salvo la musica hasta pasadas las 24hs, incluso cuando nadie se divierte. Buena pileta, algunas cosas necesitan mas atencion, como las canchas de voley con yuyos o las computadoras apagadas. Aun asi, la mejor eleccion Great stay, with a few exceptions such as loud music past midnight even when no one's partying. Excellent pool, somethings need more attention such as the unused voleyball field covered in weeds or the turned off computers for the guests. Still, your best choice.


Dripping tap in bathroom and shower curtain was filthy. Beds were comfortable though and the pool area was lovely. Wifi in the dorms and around the pool would be useful


Although we were much older than most of the other guests, we did not feel uncomfortable. It was a really fun place for young and old alike. The staff was friendly & accommodating, the dining room was good. The double room and private bath was very basic, but adequate. Beautiful grounds and pool.

Great hostel, with a really nice big pool. The staff were very helpful and spoke great English. Good location in terms of getting to Iguacu falls but a short bus or taxi ride in to town for the restaurants. Right next door to the ice bar which is definitely an experience in such a hot country.


I had a great time at Hostel Inn after the busy weekend was over. I stayed 4 nights. The hostel is outside of town, but believe me, that's a plus! The pool is fantastic and the best reason to stay here! Two comments: I stayed in a four bed dorm (2C) without one electrical outlet! And most of the staff at reception need a course in hospitality. Manager Leo and cook José were extremely friendly and really made my stay, but the others were very distant & acted like they didn't want to be there.


The reception staff were rude (short hair girl)


Great pool! Like a hotel. Good food menu too. Usual average breakfast (bread and butter with coffee). Good for booking tours.
